BOE Liaisons Attend Student Forum

March 5, 2024

Valley Stream Central High School District Board of Education Student Liaisons Mary Youssef and Gunand Thind represented VS Central and North high school at the Long Island BOCES Student Forum on Thursday, February 29th, hosted by Eastern and Western Suffolk BOCES.

This forum included student representatives from more than 40 different Long Island districts, and was held to discuss the issues impacting students today. Districts were permitted to send two students to represent their communities. Mary and Gunand shared their thoughts on five topics affecting high school students, including school/life balance, mental health, school environment, real-life experiences, as well as social issues and connections.

The two Valley Stream student representatives were given the opportunity to connect with a wide range of students from different social, cultural and economic backgrounds and gain perspective on how other schools operate across the Island. We are very proud of their participation as student liaisons and leaders in our schools. Great job, Mary and Gunand!
